There's two things you can do. You can end your patrol anywhere by hitting "Esc" and end patrol. This magically transports you home. You don't get all possible renown though. If you steam home to within some preset distance (I forget what it is) you get extra renown.

Personally, I just motor back into the pen I left from. I'm a bit of a realism freak.

I send my patrol report after I am about 10-15 K. from the base. Shortly after I will hear a "message received", at this point I will then dock my sub.. It appears this works the best through the careers I have been through.

I steam toward my home base at 1024x time compression and wait until the program 'stutters', then I know I'm in range to hit escape, exit patrol and dock at base 'XXXX'

After you are within 20km of your base, hit ESC and "Dock at PORT".

Don't get too close to the dock or you won't get credit for the patrol (bug).
